Way-C is an African-designed tablet, like an iPad and for the Geo Quiz, we are looking for the two cities where the Way-C went on sale Monday.

Both cities are in the Republic of Congo.

The cities, one capital and the other a major oil port, are the African nation's two largest cities.

The Way-C, which means "the light of the starts" in a local northern Congo dialect, was invented by 26-year-old Verone Mankou under his company VMK.

Capital Brazzaville and oil port city of Pointe-Noire are the answers to the Geo Quiz.

It is in these cities that the $300 device went on sale.
